Luxurious Rangitiki

To promote the luxurious Rangitiki, these two images were printed in the August 1938 passenger list for the voyage of the Remuera which has just been added on this website (click here).

First we see the Adams Drawing Room for first class passengers, complete with open fireplace, easy chairs, potted palms and piano. Goodness only knows what it was like in rough weather – have a look at Aileen Mckay’s description of the gales that the Rangitane suffered in 1961 (click here).


The second image features the first class Louis XVI dining saloon. What a civilised way to travel.
